IF THEIR textural, dreamy sounds alone aren’t enough to enchant you, go the Foundery to check out Those Manic Sea’s frontman.
....Don’t expect to find a traditional vocalist swaying behind the mic, though.
“Our ‘lead singer’ is not a real person, which makes an interesting show,” explains drummer Daniel Medley. “And if the singer doesn’t make sense, coming to our show will clear it all up. We really are a live band.”
Spoiler alert: it’s a television, mounted on a mannequin body, that will serenade you on Sunday. Those Manic Seas don’t opt for the bleepy-bloop robot-in-the-band schtick, though; it’s a beautiful, soaring voice, warm and transcendent against the fizzling bass, searing post-punk guitar leads, and explosive drums of Warren Baker, Drew Rollo, and Medley.
The Richmond, Virginia band is sure to appeal to fans of MuteMath, Broken Social Scene, and My Bloody Valentine.
Savannah’s Between Symmetries, whose new album, Movetur, is due October 23, share the bill.
Sunday, October 11, 8 p.m., free (donations encouraged), all ages
